Jeremy Lin says not to blame him for the surprisingly quick end to his Knicks career.
In an interview with the San Jose Mercury News, Lin said he had nothing to do with the Rockets’ decision to restructure their offer sheet with Lin, which raised the value of the contract’s third year to just under $15 million and ultimately led the Knicks to decide to decline to match the three-year, $25.1 million offer.
“I didn’t go back to them and ask for more money,” Lin told the newspaper. “It wasn’t like they gave me the choice to sign one of the two and I chose the one that would hurt the Knicks. I had one contract offer. That was it.”
